Meanwhile I moved on to the wheel. The rim didn’t have rust at all which meant that I only needed to remove the paint from it. The shaft, the nuts and the washers were all covered in rust which made them stuck to each other. I tried to remove them from the shaft, but I couldn’t, hence I sprayed WD40 in order to loosen them. After an hour I was finally able to remove them easily.

To remove the rust from the nuts and the washers, I soaked them in rust remover.
